VirtualHand for V5 CAD Software

Immersion Corporation (Nasdaq:IMMR), a leading developer of 3D and force-feedback products and technologies, invites SIGGRAPH attendees to be among the first to try the beta version of VirtualHand(R) for MOCAP, a plug-in for Immersion's CyberGlove(R) hand-sensing hardware. With this plug-in, filmmakers and game developers using the CyberGlove system can easily capture, edit, and blend motion animation with Kaydara's MOCAP real-time capture software while creating animated films or games.

"Development of VirtualHand software for MOCAP was driven by demand from animators and filmmakers, who needed high-quality hand-based motion capture for their film and animation projects," said Greg Belaus, Senior Director of Immersion's 3D and Professional Products Group. "They will now be able to quickly and accurately capture and record physical hand and digit movement for CG animation using the CyberGlove system."

Immersion will also show third-party software that uses the recently announced Mac SDK for the MicroScribe(R) G2 digitizer. The new SDK allows 3D Mac software developers to integrate MicroScribe desktop digitizing systems into their applications that run on Apple computers. Immersion's MicroScribe G2 digitizer is an articulated arm that design-engineers, game developers, animators and industrial designers use to convert physical objects into digital 3D models for virtual manipulation and editing.

MicroScribe digitizing demonstrations on the Mac platform will include:

-- Eovia Corp. (product: pre-release of Amapi Pro 7 -

-- auto.des.sys, Inc. (product: form.Z -

-- PiXELS Digital, Inc. (product: PiXELS3D -

In addition, Immersion will show its Haptic Workstation(TM) with VirtualHand for V5 CAD software. Attendees trying the product will be immersed in a CATIA V5 3D-model of an automobile interior and be able to physically use their hands to interact with and feel components on the graphical dashboard in real-time.

VirtualHand for MOCAP Availability

VirtualHand for MOCAP is expected to be released in September 2003.
